2018 Speed Queen® Top Load Washers

Built Better to Last Longer

BUILT SMARTER TO PERFORM BETTER THAN EVER.

When the U.S. Department of Energy's 2018 top load washer standards raised the bar for energy- and water-efficiency, we didn't see an obstacle; we saw an opportunity. We challenged ourselves to not just meet the new standards, but exceed them—all while improving our already legendary wash quality.

Explore the rest of this page to see exactly how we accomplished our goal.

BUILT SMARTER TO PERFORM BETTER THAN EVER.

DEFINING THE PERFECT WASH

Our new top load washer exceeds standards with commercial-grade quality, bringing the latest advances in home laundry straight to your laundry room.

<p>Each load of laundry is unique: different fabrics, different soil levels and different sizes all mean different wash settings. Until now, it was your job to memorize them. Not anymore. Our unique Auto Fill feature guarantees that every load uses the right amount of water for an effective wash. Engineered with patent-pending sensing technology, Speed Queen<sup>®</sup> top load washers account for fabric type, absorbency—even the sizes of items being washed—to determine optimal water levels for better wash results.</p>

AUTO FILL: DESIGNED NOT JUST TO DO LAUNDRY, BUT TO KNOW LAUNDRY.

Auto Fill

<p>In the 2018 top load washer, even the agitator serves a new purpose: a power source to push water through laundry. This revolutionary redesign means cleaner clothes, fewer tangled messes, and minimized damage to delicate fabrics—in other words, all the advantages of a front load washer in a commercial-grade, top load design.</p>

<p>Commercial laundry technology gets quality results. Our new 2018 top load washer proves that—not only in a superior wash, but by the way clothing itself is treated. Fabrics sustain less wear and tear. In fact, our results show a nearly 20% reduction in damage to fabrics compared to previous Speed Queen models. When you're already spending $1,700 on clothes per year*, that's a difference that counts.</p>

CUSTOMIZE YOUR WASH

Speed Queen top load washers have the most customizable controls on the market, giving you the flexibility to do your laundry your way.

Heavy-Duty Cycle

This cycle is the best choice for sturdy fabrics, heavily soiled fabrics, and stains. Combine it with a higher soil level for more stain removal.

Normal Eco Cycle

Save energy with this cycle designed for everyday, lightly soiled garments. It uses less water—and less hot water.

Water Temperature

Choose your own water temperature. On non-ECO cycles, the water temperature is determined by the temperature of the incoming water supply.

Water Level

Choose your own water level—or set it to Auto Fill for the perfect amount of water for your fabric and load size.

Soil Level*

Our commercial laundry experience tells us that sorting the load by type and then by soil level is the optimal way to wash. The TR7 provides the flexibility to add or subtract agitation time depending on each load’s soil level.

Special Cycles*

Choose a wash cycle designed for specific fabrics types, save energy, or increase your wash action for the ultimate control over your laundry.

*Available on select models
